    Journey to Intelligent Supply Chain - Dr. Matt Taylor

    Journey to Intelligent Supply Chain - Dr. Matt Taylor

    On this episode of The POD Cast, hosts Mike Allan and Kaitlin Mercier talk with guest, Dr. Matt Taylor, form the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute about how to get started on the path to employing AI.
     
    Matt Taylor
     
    Matthew E. Taylor (Matt) received his doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin in the summer of 2008, supervised by Peter Stone. He then completed a two-year postdoctoral research position at the University of Southern California with Milind Tambe and spent 2.5 years as an assistant professor at Lafayette College. He was then an assistant professor at Washington State University where he held the Allred Distinguished Professorship in Artificial Intelligence. In 2017, he temporarily left academia to help start an artificial intelligence lab in Edmonton, Alberta, with Borealis AI, the artificial intelligence research lab for the Royal Bank of Canada. He is now a tenured associate professor in computer science at the University of Alberta, a Fellow-in-Residence at the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute, and remains an adjunct professor at Washington State University. He has been a PI or co-PI on over $6M USD in competitively awarded research funding from federal, state, and industrial sources, including the National Science Foundation CAREER award. He has (co-)supervised 7 graduated PhD students and 5 MS students, as well as published over 120 peer-reviewed papers in conferences and journals. His current fundamental and applied research interests are in reinforcement learning, human-in-the-loop AI, multi-agent systems, and robotics.
     
    AMII
     
    AMII’s mission is to make artificial intelligence and machine learning the primary drivers of sustainable growth for Alberta’s economy – through great research, advisement and education.
     
    We began in 2002 as the Alberta Ingenuity Centre for Machine Learning (AICML), a joint effort between the Government of Alberta and the University of Alberta (UAlberta). Originally funded through the Alberta Ingenuity Fund, the research centre soon became known as the Alberta Innovates Centre for Machine Learning after being brought under the umbrella of Alberta Innovates. In 2017 the centre rebranded as Amii, becoming part of the CIFAR Pan-Canadian AI Strategy and launching as a not-for-profit in the heart of Edmonton’s downtown core. Over its twenty-year history, and thanks to forward-looking investments by Alberta Innovates and the Government of Alberta, Amii has built a world-class team of researchers at the University of Alberta and affiliated institutions. Since our inception, we have increased research capacity in AL/ML nearly nine-fold, starting with four co-founding members at the University of Alberta and now funding the research of 28 Fellows (including 23 Canada CIFAR AI Chairs) and eight Canada CIFAR AI Chairs at universities across Western Canada.
     
    Key Takeaways
     
    What is AMII and what they do to optimize the supply chain
    Who is Matt Taylor and why he entered this industry
    What are the biggest challenges to the supply chain that AMII is working to solve
    What is the next big thing coming to the industry
    Advice for people in supply chain, where they should be looking and focusing their efforts

    Manual Process Optimization - Rene Grzeszick

    On this episode of The POD Cast, hosts Mike Allan and Kaitlin Mercier talk with guest, Rene Grzeszick, co-founder and CTO of MotionMiners. 
     
     
    Rene Grzeszick
     
     
    Rene is co-founder and CTO of MotionMiners, the primary responsibility of his work being the area of data analysis. Rene received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in computer science from TU Dortmund University in Dortmund, Germany, in 2010 and 2012 respectively.

This concept would lead to the eventual founding of MotionMiners in October of 2017 with partners René Grzeszick and Sascha Kaczmarek. During the first two years, MotionMiners was closely associated with the Fraunhofer Institute, but since the summer of 2019 they have been completely spun off. Motion-Mining® makes it easy for companies to perform analysis regarding efficiency and ergonomics for process optimization. Utilizing MotionMiner’s sensors and AI, you can automatically carry out analysis with 80% less effort than conventional methods. MotionMiners aims to provide the world’s most flexible and comprehensive analysis toolbox for human activities.
